Following the advice of Kano State Police Commissioner to Former Kano Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso not to come visit the state now base on security reasons, the Senate has ordered its Committee on Police affairs to summon the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The summon was reached following a point of order moved by Senator Isah Hamma Misau (APC,Bauchi) on the return of thuggery to Kano state.

Kwankwaso had scheduled to visit Kano, but the Kano State Police Commissioner advised him against it.

Misau alleged that in the last three days people in Kano have been armed with dangerous weapons, saying the Boko Haram crisis in Borno and other parts of the Northeast started in a similar scenario.

But Senators Barau Jibrin and Kabir Gaya faulted the claim of Misau. They said the feud between Kwankwaso and Governor Ganduje is a family issue and that it should be treated as such.

Remarking, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki asked the IGP to appear before the Police Affairs committee and provide security to Kwankwaso to visit Kano.
